Some people trace the history of fast food in America to 1912, when a fast food restaurant called the Automat opened in New York. The Automat was a cafeteria with its prepared foods behind small glass windows and coin-operated slots. Later numerous Automat restaurants were built around the country to deal with the demand. The company also popularized the notion of “take-away” food with their slogan “Less work for Mother”.

However, the hamburger restaurant, which is most associated by the public with “fast food”, was created by two brothers McDonald. They opened a barbecue drive-in in 1940. After discovering that most of their profits came from hamburgers, the brothers closed their restaurant for three months and reopened it in 1948 as a walk-up stand offering a simple menu of hamburgers, French fries, shakes, coffee, and Coca-Cola, served in disposable paper wrapping.
